This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
Green Chemistry has revolutionized the molecular and engineering sciences providing guiding principles towards sustainable chemical value chains. It aims at minimizing the use and/or production of substances toxic to humans and the environment while maximizing resource efficiency and striving for closed material and energy cycles.
The Green Chemistry GRC will highlight the most recent advances in selected areas with an emphasis on scientific progress for real world applications. The session topics range from chemical energy conversion through catalysis for bulk and fine chemicals all the way to pharmaceutical production. The central Green Chemistry principle of "design" will be the common denominator for the contributions.
World leading experts will share their latest results with ample time for discussion during and between the sessions. The poster sessions will be a central forum for in depth discussion of current projects and new concepts. Attendees will select some of the best posters to be presented as short talks.
All participants are strongly encouraged to support the conference objectives of full participation through attendance and the presentation of a poster highlighting their recent work. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are also strongly encouraged to consider attending the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Green Chemistry (July 25-26, same location) that is geared towards promoting interaction and discussion among junior scientists.
